An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. Matthew 12:38-41
Yeshua (Jesus) told us clearly here that the sign of his authenticity will be the sign of the prophet Jonah. Also read Matthew 16 and Luke 11.
Matthew 12:40 clearly tells us that Yeshua would be in the grave THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS (72 HOURS).
Jesus was not crucified on 3pm “Good” Friday and then resurrected Sunday morning.
Mathematics clearly proves this… How does 3 days and 3 nights fit in to a 2 nights and one day time period?
The Gospel account tells of how the Feast of Passover was a rehearsal for when our Messiah would be offered for the sins of the world. Everything that was done for a thousand years by the Israelites to the Passover Lamb was fulfilled by Yeshua (Jesus) to the minutest detail.
Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:6-8
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29
And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. Genesis 22:8
In the year our Lord was crucified, the High Sabbath Passover was on a Wednesday evening. The crucifixion happened around 3pm Wednesday.
The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. John 19:31
It is important to know that God’s calender begins the day starting at Evening (sunset). Genesis 1:2-5.
Just before sunset on Wednesday our Lord Yeshua was put in the tomb.
In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:1-6
3 days and 3 nights later women come to Yeshua’s tomb in the early hours of the first day while it is dark. According to God’s reckoning of time the early hours of the first day is Saturday night and not Sunday morning.
Jesus was crucified and then put in the tomb on the High Sabbath and then resurrected on the weekly Sabbath. There goes the last legs of Sunday church theology.
Jesus taught us during his ministry to keep passover and do it in remembrance of him.
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. Luke 22: 19-20
The Sunday festival is pagan wickedness and presents a false gospel. Do not be deceived.
Accept no substitution for the truth.
Reject paganism and come worship the true God, the God of Israel.
Worthy is the Lamb!
